Princes of Dol Amroth
February, 25 2006
Questions about the life and times of Imrahil and his family can be asked here, including questions about Ultimatums, Kin-Strife and the shorter stories. Discussions about Brand can go either here or in the Best-Loved Son thread, since his stories sort of overlap both cycles.
I didn't find The Exercise of Vital Powers to be convincing, in terms of Tolkien canon and my own understanding of Aragorn's character. It's a fine story, but I can only accept it as part of a parallel universe, as I accept the movies. (nothing against Soledad; who is a gifted writer; I absolutely love her story Face of the Enemy). I think if there were such instability brewing within Gondor, (i.e. Dol Amroth backing Denethor and the Steward backing Thorongil) due to Thorongil's presence, he would have planned to leave himself (after the destruction of the Corsair fleet, which he would have rightly guessed was more important than anyone's hurt feelings) with no urging needed from Finduilas or anyone.
